Very well could be a blown head gasket. You may have a clog in the cooling lines (hoses) Have a pressure test done to determine exactly what is going on.

I have a 2006 pontiac grand prix 3.8l my heat only blow cold aair I checked the thermostat and the heart inlet hose is hot but the outlet hose is luke war what could this be maybe clogged heater core.


Ok fellow 2006 Grand Prix owners!! By trial and error, I went through the process of elimination because my car would over heat and had no heat inside. After changing the thermostat, I had to replace the water pump. However, after you do this, you need to open the inlet hose bleeder and let the air out a few times. This solved my issue of overheating and I now have great heat!!!

Over heating ,abs light comes on,but no heat only coolair w/air conf


check your water pump if it go's out it will cause you car to over heat and blow out cool air. if not water pump check your thermostat ez way is your hose on the left side (driver side) hot or cold if hot thermostat probably fine. if cold replace it. and it never hearts to do an coolant flush. last but not lease those motors are notorious for bad intake gaskets.

Car overheating fluids are full can't find fuse for fans fans aren't comin on till I turn on heT


Could be thermostat is not opining or water pump is failing. I would start by replacing thermostat if that doesn't help then Replace the heat sensor that tells u temp and when fans should kick on. If Ur still having problems I would replace the water pump. But I highly doubt that it's the water pump. It's either thermostat or sensor.

Car over heating.... changed water pump,raditor, milled heads,replace computer, flush block, thermo still over heats


YOU HAVE A THERMOSTAT THAT IS OPENING AT 195 (TO HIGH) TRY REPLACING IT WITH A 160 DEGREE IT WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO FLOW MORE FREELY, ALTHOUGH THE HEAT WILL TAKE A BIT LONGER TO HEAT UP, THE ENGINE WILL STOP OVER HEATING. YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT FROM BEGINNING.
